I've lived in Charlotte for 2 years and finally made it to Price's. This long standing establishment has lines out the door, only offers takeout, and if you don't like sweet tea, then you'll need to separately purchase from the vending machine. The fried chicken is out of this world good. I had the chicken breast and wing dinner, and... More

Walking into the old, brick building, under the white Price's Chicken Coop sign, you fin that the ordering process is unique, adding a flavor to the experience: Selecting from a simple menu, ordering from the counter from a number of registers, paying cash-only, and taking away the trademark white box. The food's delicious, as impressive as you expect after reading... More

No frills, cash only, take out fried chicken. That's it. GREAT fried chicken. Just make a plan so you can eat quick once you get your food. That meant the trunk of my car! :-) Try it just for experience.

Omg! I've had some great fried chicken in my day but NONE of it compared to what I had this past Saturday! This place was incredible!!!!! I only eat white meat which most of the time is cooked too long so it tends to be a little dry. Nope..not this place. It was flavorful and juicy. I'm not an eat... More

Hands down one of the best fried chicken's I've had so far! Cash only and take out only! Chicken is crispy outside and juicy inside. They use peanut oil so it's kind of a healthier way to use for frying. Quick service too!

I was raised in Georgia and my mother fried chicken twice a week, so I think I'm a pretty good judge. The Coop is old school and the best fried chicken I've had out. Don't waste your time on sides, just order the whole bird. Oh yeah, cash only and don't order unsweetened tea please!

Best fried chicken I've ever had and the tea wasn't bad either. Parking was actually not bad. You could park in front on the side street or behind the building. The place was filled with locals, which is always a god sign. The service was super friendly and pretty fast. Two thumbs way up.
